I’m glad I didn’t realize Into the Woods was a musical before I went to watch it, because I don’t always like musicals. One of the few previous exceptions is Les Miserables.
Into the Woods, however, was quite funny, and the singing was generally excellent. It is an amusing movie, one that combines a number of fairy tales into one story. The princes may be especially funny, although there are darker undertones there: “I was raised to be charming, not good.”
If you are looking for an entertaining movie, one that you can probably watch with the whole family, Into the Woods could be a good choice for you.
